BRIEF GUIDE FOR THE USE OF THE SLOW CRACK GROWTH TEST FOR MODELING AND PREDICTING THE LONG-TERM PERFORMANCE OF POLYETHYLENE GAS PIPES. FINAL REPORT, MARCH 1987-MAY 1992. VOLUME 1
The report aims to quantify the applicability of the Battelle slow crack growth (SCG) test for predicting long-term performance of polyethylene gas distribution pipes, and to demonstrate the applicability of the methodology for use by the gas industry for accelerated characterization testing, thereby bringing the SCG test development effort to a closure.
